Znupi Posted April 16, 2007 Share Posted April 16, 2007 I'm a very big fan of Paint.NET but there's one thing I'm missing. That thing is simple tiling. I'm a webdeveloper and use Paint.NET for graphics for websites a lot. A nice effect I like to give to pages is "diagonal lines" background. On sites, that's easy to achieve, create a 3x3 image, fill it with whatever color and using the Pencil make three dots with another color, then use CSS to repeat that image all over the background. But sometimes that's not enough, and I want to make a nice gradient with diagonal lines, that will mean a bigger image and will mean that I have to tile the 3x3 image. Currently that's impossible so I usually take a screenshot of the page with the 3x3 image background and paste it in Paint.NET (!!!). I really think coding this would be trivial (I don't know any .NET coding or I would've done it myself) considering what you have done so far. The way I see this done is like this: make a selection using any select tool, go to effects -> tile, maybe have a choice to tile it on the x-axis, on the y-axis, or both, click OK and the selection would be repeated all over the layer. I think it would be a really great feature and it would make Paint.NET a lot better, at least for me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
